  Section 1. Subparagraphs 1, 2, 3 and 4 of paragraph j of subdivision 1
of section 272 of the education law, subparagraphs 1, 2 and 3 as amended
by section 2 of part O of chapter 57 of the laws of 2005, subparagraph 4
as  added  by  chapter  386  of the laws of 1996, are amended to read as
follows:
  (1) IN THE EVENT THAT THE STATE AID FORMULA FUNDS APPROPRIATED  FOR  A
PUBLIC  LIBRARY  SYSTEM  UNDER SECTION TWO HUNDRED SEVENTY-THREE OF THIS
PART ARE LESS THAN EIGHTY-FIVE PERCENT OF THE STATUTORY FORMULA  AMOUNTS
IN  SUCH  SECTION,  THE PROVISIONS OF SUBPARAGRAPHS TWO AND FIVE OF THIS

  (2) In the event that the sum total of local sponsor support raised by
local taxation exclusive of the sum raised for capital expenditures  for
the  support of a public library system and participating libraries in a
twelve month period is less than ninety-five per centum of  the  average
of  the  amounts  raised for such purposes by local taxation for the two
preceding twelve month periods, the state  aid  to  which  such  library
system  would  otherwise be entitled shall be reduced by twenty-five per
centum. Such state aid shall likewise  be  reduced  by  twenty-five  per
centum  in  the  event that the public library system shall refuse after
reasonable notice to make provision for the expansion of the area served

annual systems and participating libraries activity reports satisfactory
to the commissioner, the commissioner shall determine the amount of  any
underpayment  or overpayments related to maintenance of effort and shall
apply such adjustment to  the  next  annual  payment  due  such  library
